Victoria Plains Shire War MemorialPrint Page Print this page

Victoria Plains Shire War Memorial was dedicated in memory of the fallen of World War One and World War Two.

The world has had virtually no peace since 1914, said Mr. J. H. Ackland, M.L.A., when unveiling a war memorial here today. In the form of an obelisk the memorial bears the names of soldiers of the district who fell in World Wars 1 and 11.  A procession marched from the municipal chambers headed by the Mundijong district pipe band, followed by members of the local sub-branch of the Returned Servicemen's League. The president of the R.S.L. sub-branch (Mr. T. Drake-Brockman) introduced Mr. Ackland who then dedicated the memorial "in the name and on behalf of the residents of the Victoria Plains Road District and in grateful memory of those men who laid down their lives for their country in both world wars."
